Mando looks 37, acts 17, feels like 87.........

must be 47.

First show - 6/10/73. Dad took me to RFK. All I remember is how hot it was and how many people there were. And how my Mom got after my Dad when he mentioned that there were people there who were smoking dope.

Didn't really climb on for real until '76 with shows at the Spectrum, Baltimore and Landover with an occasional foray over to Jersey.

Stopped in 79 when I went to the Naval Academy - started back up in '84 at SPAC in Saratoga while stationed as a student at the nuke training prototype. Came back as an instructor in 88-90 and saw SPAC, Knickerbocker, Glens Falls, Albany and Springfield.

What was the original question?
